The author is torn.
She would love to put her byline at the top of this story, but doing so would build her ‘brand name’ as a writer. This is not in the spirit of AfrikaBurn, which is about de-commodification and not profiting from what happens at the ’Burn. So she's going with a nom de plume.
Her ego isn’t happy about this decision.
How her ’Burn persona became known as ‘Curly’ is another story, involving a cheap wig and aspirations to look like an Olde Worlde brothel madam. Her ego isn’t terribly happy about this turn of events, either.
